MyPlate Coloring Pages, Teach Kids About Types of Foods!
Getting kids to make healthy and smart food choices can be tricky, but this MyPlate Coloring Page makes learning about nutrition fun for little kids. MyPlate coloring page is a fun way to engage young children and their parents in learning about the importance of eating a wide variety of colorful fruits and vegetables every day to promote better health. Kids will learn how much of each type of food that they should be eating so they get all the nutrients needed to grow, learn and thrive.
If we left it up to kids, every meal would consist of ice cream. french fries, sausages, and cupcakes. We can’t blame them–sometimes we feel the same way. Still, part of our job as the parents is to help them understand the importance of eating a variety of foods, especially ones that are actually healthy.
MyPlate Coloring Page goals are:
- to teach kids that there are different types of foods that we can separate into groups.
- to help kids understand that we need to eat foods from all the groups to keep our bodies healthy.
MyPlate coloring page is presented to kids and parents alike through simple preschool skills like naming foods, matching letters and sorting foods help teach key MyPlate messages.
This coloring page helps kids get acquainted with MyPlate and how it can be used as a visual tool for a lifetime of healthy eating.Kids will explore the different food groups (vegetables, fruits, grains, and protein foods, as well as a “cup” on the side for dairy) that are represented on MyPlate Coloring Page and analyze a meal of their own by drawing it on a page. Finally, kids will reflect on the food they eat and how they can make more balanced meal choices that we should put on our plates to stay healthy.
